You can use a blower to blow underneath the bottom of the keys and use some cleaner to clean it with a swab. Free some memory in case the system is too busy to handle the input from keyboard.

The.spacebar.stopped..working.



If your space bar isn't responding when you press it, or if it responds sluggishly, it's possible that you have inadvertently enabled the "Sticky Keys" or "Filter Keys" accessibility option in Windows.


When these options are enabled, your keyboard response time will be dramatically slowed and may require more than one tap to register a keystroke.


Fortunately, it's easy to disable these functions and return your keyboard to normal working order.


Click "Start" and select "All Programs."


Click "Accessories" and select "Ease of Access."

Click "Ease of Access Center."


Click "Make Keyboard Easier to Use."


Click "Set Up Sticky Keys." Deselect the checkbox that says "Turn on Sticky Keys When Shift is Pressed Five Times." Make sure the box that says "Turn on Sticky Keys" is not checked. Click "OK" to save your changes.


Click "Set Up Filter Keys." Uncheck the box that says "Turn on Filter Keys."

Click on the checkbox next to "Turn On Filter Keys When Right Shift Is Pressed For 8 Seconds" to deselect it. Click "OK" to save your changes.


Click "OK" again to save all of the keyboard accessibility changes you have made.


Hope this helps

My laptop is entering more than one character at a time when typing in my password for example its adding additional letters how can i turn this off


seems like something is ring with the keyboard, try an external keyboard, if the issue is still the same this will be a windows issue, once in windows tap on the shift key 5 times this will either deactivate sticky keys or ask you to activate sticky keys.
If it is not a sticky key setting issue then the problem most likely will be Hardware, did any liquid spill on your keyboard previously causing the key to malfunction causing the key to type extra characters?
If none then possible this is a faulty keyboard on the machine.

HP ProBook 1. Everytime i try to type in a box the screen closes to the desktop 2 my font size always changes; i have to continually change it back to 100, how do i get it to stay.


Seems the on board keyboard had problems ( sticky ) Have you try using Usb keyboard? I guess the 'Sticky key' is Ctrl or Alt key. you can try pressing Shift key 5 times repetedly ( to disable sticky key )
Try remap keyboard > ( to disable sticky key with application )

Shift key not working


You have 2 Shift keys on the keyboard. If the other shift key is working then the shift key that is not working is defective. You should consider replacing the keyboard on your laptop. There is no setting on Windows that can disable the shift key.

**Note : If both Shift keys are not working, Try to check if sticky keys feature on windows is on. Sticky keys should be disabled. To disable sticky keys, Click on start and Go into control panel > Accessibility Options, and under keyboard there is sticky keys. Remove the tick and click apply and OK.

**If "Use Sticky Keys" is unchecked, that means sticky keys is disabled.

I hit the shift key too long on my keyboard at work and it asked it I wanted to filter the keys Or whatever and I clicked ok. Now my keyboard is not working. What do I do?


Do you mean your keyboard is now not responding as it should do, or completely not working ?
If you press the SHIFT key 5 times in succession, a box appears asking if you want to change the 'sticky keys' function in Windows.
This means that instead of holding down the keys for SHIFT. CTRL, or ALT, you can just press them once and they will lock on (like an old style manual typewriter used to behave).
It's most likely you now have sticky-keys turned on, so your keyboards going silly.
Press the SHIFT key again 5 times, and that initial box will appear again. Make sure you click on CANCEL using the mouse only. That should fix it.

Hello and thank you for using Fixya's services.

A can of air will fix this problem. You can find this at any electronics store. Turn the keyboard upside down and blow the air into the keyboard. This will clean the keyboard and anything stuck inside. Dust, food, etc. generally, over time, tends to get stuck in the keyboard and causes the "sticky" keys.

Hope this helps!

My dell keyboard responds slowly to key presses. sometimes not at all! it takes ages to type email!


I think I finally figured this thing out. On mine it only seemed to happen when I was online. I thought that maybe there was just too much happening at the same time. Well turns out that there may have been. I turned off the gadgets that are on my sidebar on my desktop and voila! Works like a charm. Hope this helps
